Iowa Cubs to get Daktronics Display at Their Home Field

The Iowa Cubs, a triple-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, has selected
Daktronics to design, manufacture and install a new LED video display for
Principal Park in Des Moines, Iowa. The new display will have 15HD pixel
layout. In addition to clear, crisp imagery and deep contrast, the display
features wide-angle visibility so every seat can see the best picture. The
display, which incorporates robust environmental protection for outdoor use,
will measure about 24 feet high by 62.5 feet wide.

“Our new state-of-the-art Daktronics video board will be able to do
everything but a backward somersault, pike position,”
said Iowa Cubs
principal owner Michael Gartner. “It will provide more information and more
excitement for our fans. They’re going to love it.”

The displays employ variable content zoning, which allows for one large
image or multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays,
statistics, scoring information, animations, graphics, and sponsor messages.

“We’re proud to be involved with this significant upgrade for Iowa Cubs
baseball at Principal Park,”
said Matt Warnke, Daktronics sales
representative. “The confidence the Iowa Cubs have shown by selecting
Daktronics says a lot about our industry-proven, high-quality product. We’re
excited to be a part of this and we are looking forward to the first game
showcasing the new display.”

Daktronics will also include its Show Control System with this
installation. This system grants a combination of display control software,
video processing, data integration and playback hardware for user-friendly
